God’s Word on Money

Today we will continue to strive towards God’s word on finances.  Yes, it is hard to think that there is light at the end of the tunnel when you are staring at mounds of bills and it looks like all hope is gone;  I’m here to tell you, you’re not alone!  God is still on the throne and His promise is that He will never leave us nor forsake us according to Hebrews 13:5.

 5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,  “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

 

Topic of the day: Money

Subtopic:  God’s advice about it

Scripture:  Hebrews 13:5

 

Money is a very needed substance in this world today, and we all know that, but we must not fall into the of total dependence on  money that we loose sight of God.  It is in God that we live, move, and have our being.  We must learn to be content with what we have and where we are in our lives, even when we are facing financial adversity.  We should learn to be happy with what we have rather than what we don’t; focus on God and His promises of meeting our needs.  Yes, things may be hard now but we must focus on the positive end results such as God’s Blessing to Job after his trials.  We must seek to see God’s love expressed through what He has provided and remember that money and possessions will all pass away but we must be strong and courageous,  not  afraid or tremble at them , for the LORD our God is the one who goes with us;  He will not fail or forsake us (Deut. 31:6.)

 

Father we bless you for the love you show towards us daily.  Help us to not live in fear over the cares of this world, but in all our ways to acknowledge you and as your word says, You shall direct our path.  Father, let us be found guilty of trusting and believing that you will see us through.  A-men.
